ToxicMunkee: Mugato: CraicBaby: He's also executive producer of Supernatural, which is a damn good show.

I hear that. I don't know how much actual creative control he has with that show but Supernatural is a suitable heir to The X-Files and Charmed.

And my Drew Barrymore bias may be in play here but Charlie's Angels was a fun movie.

But yeah, no white guy should ever call himself "McG". That's farking lame.

It's a nickname. His middle name is McGinty.



Ironballs?

Snapper Carr: kroonermanblack: Also, is supernatural done? Or ongoing? Might go back and check it out now. I always thought it was a terrible copy of Buffy and angel but if it's supposed to be up to fark's standards...

New season starts Oct 3.

Personally, I've been a fan the show since the beginning - the first 5 seasons were extremely solid and the next 2 have had some good moments (though the quality has taken a hit since Kripke stepped back)


Torn on Supernatural post Season 5 - The story really was beautifully complete had it ended just before they showed Sam being back at the last second but every now and then they come up with an episode so fun (Weekend at Bobby's comes to mind) it makes it worth wrecking such a complete story arc for.

Sorry Subby Movie McG may be hit and miss but TV McG rocks

McG got his name from having the same name as his grandfather. From interviews (possible unreliable sure) his family gave him that nickname.

Oh and for Supernatural, I discounted it as a CW show with two dudes until I caugh lt it while bored one night. No idea how it has survived on that network. Also a great soundtrack, I think that's where most of the budget goes.

I think I may be the only person on the planet who liked that.

Though I posted the wrong image, Tin Man I really enjoyed, even for the cheesy moments (boob monkeys!). But overall found it a fun and interesting take on some of the concepts of Oz while writing their own story. The Alice show.... I did not find that one in the same light.

I hope MischaCas comes back next season.

Hrm. Thanks for the replies all. Can I ask another selfish question not really on-topic?

Has anyone seen Alphas, and Lost Girl?

I caught about 15 minutes of both one weekend visiting the parents. Alphas seemed very Warehouse 13/Eureka/Sanctuary-ish, where they have a moderate budget and good writers (sometimes), but Lost girl seemed...like it was about the tits. Like Buffy without the writing and charm. Wooden actors going through what even a self described super-nerd would call a terribly hokey and embarrasing script.

Probably. The only part I remember favorably was the monkey tits.

Yeah, I, having too much time on my hands, have watched all of Alphas so far and the first season of Lost girl. Couldn't get through the second season. I don't recommend either, but Alphas at least has some interesting bits. It takes itself too seriously to have that many cliches though. Warehouse 13/Eureka/Sanctuary/Supernatural/etc. are all significantly better, but it's not quite so bad that I've stopped watching yet.

The actors are what keep me interested in it - Straitharn obviously but also Ryan Cartwright (who is far and away the #1 reason to watch the show) and Erin Way (who is in serious contention for the #2 spot - especially after this last episode) are both outstanding. Also the show manages to avoid most of the stupid shiat that made Heroes unwatchable past season 1 (though it's dangerously close to X-men vs Brotherhood of Evil Mutants plagiarism)

The "Photic Stimulator" is in dangerous territory, if they start upgrading powers out of control, like so many failed superpower shows. 
Ditto about those actors specifically, though.

Ugh. that last sentence is phrased ambiguously. I mean to say that I agree that those actors (especially Cartwright and Straitharn) do well.

It is on Netflix now. I was watching it. I actually liked that mini series.
